Yummy Conch Chowder

We stopped in here during a food tour. The owner was there and greeted us. The place was very nice and the conch chowder was delicious. I would definitely come back when I visit Nassau again.

You won't be disappointed. I am somewhat of a regular and recommend the conch chowder and tuna tartar. The butter is also amazing.

My daughter and I had lunch here and loved it. We sat on the front porch which was shady and cool despite the noonday sun. The chef came by with a warm welcome and a delightful amuse bouche and the waitresses were friendly and efficient. Our entree-sized salads were fresh and delicious. We look forward to returning to try dinner.

Dined at Van Brugel's Friday evening. It is steps away from Bay Street so convenient to the center of Nassau. We chose to sit on the veranda. It was perfect- lots of space between tables and quiet - unlike most of the restaurants in Nassau that blast amplified music day and night. Our waiter, Sydney, was so pleasant, very knowledgeable...

We heard about a new event at Van Brugel's - a pop up all you can eat brunch so 5 of us decided to give it a try. The restaurant wasn't quite ready for us but we sat outside on the porch quietly recovering from the night before. The event was run by Lyndon - he happily served us great... More

a well-frequented and very well-known spot in Nassau where one can enjoy an open balcony and excellent food and drinks and where the owner is in charge of the kitchen.

Service and food were excellent. Wife's birthday celebrating with friends. Couldn't have been treated better and the food very good. Recommend for lunch or dinner.

The staff was friendly, well informed, easy to talk to, made a great meal experience. Try the Thai Beef, followed by the Strudel.
